Hello, I began a home practice via dvd's from Amazon, about 18 months ago and also attended a 3 month class from a teacher at my school I teach at (That teacher unfortunately moved to California). Mostly, I have been practicing at home. I am hooked on yoga. My favorite is Hatha yoga. I am new to this forum and hope to meet others who feel passionate about yoga. Most people around me (friends and family) don't quite understand why I enjoy yoga, but see how it calms me down and improves my overall health.
